Be glad it didn't stall over Florida like it did over the Bahamas. No one predicted that.Models did predict that. Just didn't predict the duration of the stall. Which lead to the storm weakening more than they thought due to land interaction and upwelling.Better safe and complaining than sorry and SOL.First world problem: complaining over the internet and with full that you weren't hit as badly by the storm as you could of been. Every year I see stories of folks crying on TV saying they had no warning or weren't prepared for how big and bad a storm was going to be. Many of these folks start with, "I've been here for xx many years and I..." Well, it only has to happen once.I'm glad the earliest models were wrong. Damn glad!Someone did an animation of each successive official cone as issued by NOAA. The models did a pretty good job of forecasting the path if you stayed within the 3-day cone. Timing and strength were a little iffy, but the path stayed good. That being said, I'm glad it didn't follow an early advanced track.On the bright side, at least Alabama wasn't hit. 😉It would have been in the cone. Have Sharpie, will travel...
Here's the animation of which I speak:https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/2019/DORIAN_graphics.php?product=5day_cone_no_line_and_wind
